"Ma" Spinelli and more
Come to Donner Memorial State Park to learn about the fascinating history of the area, which encompasses gold mining roots, participation in California's oldest rail system, and of course, the infamous Donner Party. Outside the Visitors' Center, look for the monumental 22-foot pioneer statue – its marks the height of the snow that fateful winter. The museum documents the intriguing and tragic history of the Donner Party's ill-fated journey to the west coast.
You can also visit Truckee's historic jail, which was in use as recently as the sixties. Dating back to 1875, the red brick building now houses a museum. Treasures of the collection include documentary evidence of famous inmates such as George "Machine Gun" Kelly, "Baby Face" Nelson, and "Ma" Spinelli and her crew.

Practise at the mini Shred Park, or bounce about on the trampolines at a dedicated 33,000-foot facility. In the summer months, take your mountain bikes to the Slabs park, which wends its way down the mountain through shifting dramatic landscapes.

Stop off at the Kentucky Mine to see the dedicated museum, and look out for the park's historic fire lookouts. During the summer, relax on the sandy beach at Donner Memorial State Park.
